Creek girls’ varsity soccer has been playing well all season and holds an overall 6-5 win record as of April 30. The team has consistently lost their opportunity to play in the championship for the last 10 years, but after building up a series of wins, the team is ready to try again, and are hoping to secure a title.

“I always have [the championship] in mind. I think we have a team that could upset some teams and people. My goal is to take one game at a time and work our way towards getting there,” sophomore forward (#15) Tianna Chambers said.

Celebrating Seniors:

The varsity soccer team hosted senior night to recognize the graduating players’ achievements both in and out of the team, speaking about their extracurriculars and other sports as well as where each senior would be attending college. Of the 24-person team, seven players are graduating.

Creek Dominates Overland:

Creek played Overland on Tuesday, April 11, winning 12-1. The win came as no surprise; Creek was ranked higher than Overland in all categories, with a 4-3 overall win record as opposed to Overland’s 2-8. The win was a comeback for Creek, coming after two losses to Fossil Ridge and Mullen the week before. During the 2022 spring season, Creek also beat Overland, but it was an even bigger feat, beating Overland 12-0. “Overland is not the strongest of teams, but it is always nice to score as many goals as possible for our standing in 5A and our rating percentage index,” Tadlock said.
